Hard and Soft Links

 26th February 2015 at 4:31pm

A hard link is one that can be detected by a superficial examination of WikiText.

A link is soft if it is:

  • contained in text trancluded from elsewhere
  • supplied via a macro or variable
  • generated by a link widget whose to attribute is a transclusion, macro or variable

Soft links are not detected by link-related filter operators such as backlinks, links, all and is.
